The International Genetic Literacy and Attitudes Survey

iGLAS is anonymous, has received ethical approval by the Goldsmiths Department of Psychology Ethics committee, and should take between 10 and 15 minutes.  Where relevant we will provide you with the correct answers, the overall score of your genetic knowledge and additional information.  By taking part in this survey, you will contribute to an international effort to ensure that genetic knowledge is used for the benefit of all people. We greatly appreciate your contribution to this scientific project.

To take the iGLAS test please select the relevant link above. If the survey does not default to your chosen language this can be set in the top right-hand corner once you have started the survey. iGLAS is currently available in Albanian, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Persian, Romanian, Russian, and Spanish and is being translated into additional languages.


Successful collaborations have already been established in Russia, Spain, Argentina, Nigeria and Romania. If you would like to collaborate with us or use iGLAS in your own research, please find details and information here…
